Emergency Landing

They Come to New York Needing Second-Trimester Abortions. An Underground Network Keeps Them Safe.

If you are a New York State resident without health insurance, Medicaid funding is available. The folks at Planned Parenthood will get you going on the spot; they provide services up to the 20th week of a pregnancy. Call them at 212-965-7000. After 20 weeks, call the Women's Healthline at the number above.

If you live outside of New York and need help finding a provider and/or funding, call the National Abortion Federation hot line at 1-800-772-9100. This group helped 40,000 women last year.
